  • Robot Rescue Challenge: Visitors can control a blimp through a challenging course to rescue a stranded team member and learn the different ways to control robots using state-of-the-art robotic technology.
  • Robots in a band! KMel Robotics created a team of precision-controlled, intricately coordinated flying vehicles that will be playing a variety of off-the-shelf and homemade instruments. The creators of these musical robots will be available to talk with students.
